sacrum cyst
My husband was just diagnosed with a cyst the of 7cm x 4.8 x 3.5cm in his tailbone,was told it is rare. We are really scared, we have no health insurance and don't know what to do. It sounds like it is really big. Is that considered big?

Hi there,
Your husband seems to be suffering from Pilonidal cyst. A pilonidal cyst is a cystic structure that develops along the tailbone approximately 4 cm-5 cm from the anus. These cysts are made up of skin debris and hair. This cyst may become infected and cause pain and inflammation. The characteristic symptoms and physical examination can help in diagnosis of Pilonidal cysts. If the cyst is not infected no immediate treatment will be needed. However if it is infected he may need incision and drainage. The treatment and management of pilonidal cysts depends on several factors like the size of cyst, chronicity of the problem etc.Any symptomatic cyst may need removal and it does not depend much on the size. Take the opinion of a surgeon. Keep us posted.
Best of luck and regards!
